 René Gruau (4 Feb 1909 – 31 Mar 2004) is one of the most well known and best fashion Illustrators.
 Everything he did, he evoked the glamour and style of the world of high fashion
Gruau's first position as artistic director for advertising was in 1947 with Christian Dior.
Gruau worked for the most famous magazines such as Marie-Claire,Elle,Vogue,Harper's Bazaar & Flair.

 All illustrations are amazing but I just chose some of them...
They are vintage, but you can see that some of them reminds us the trends of today...
Finally fashion goes round in circles...
